LEP and Low Literacy as Waiver Factors

Postby kysjohns » Tue Jun 07, 2011 11:46 am

Q: If a participant was not marked as having Limited English Proficiency or Low Literacy when they first applied to the SCSEP (LEP was marked NO, Low literacy was marked NO), can that be corrected now to YES, years later? In other words, if we evaluate the participant in the year of thedurational limit and find that they meet the qualifications for either of these waivers, can you update the NO to YES?

They way we read it, Low Literacy or LEP cannot beĀ  changed in the priority of service but they can be updated as waiver factors because they are both a waiver factor and a priority of service.

LEP and Low Literacy as Waiver Factors

A: That is correct. LEP and low literacy are both priorities of service (P22 and P24) and waiver factors (P55 and P56). They cannot be updated as priorities of service, but they can be updated as waiver factors anytime you become aware of them. If updated as waiver factors, you will only get credit for the Most-in-Need Measure in the program year during which they were updated. You will have to update them each year that they still apply in order to continue receiving credit. You will also need to update them in the year the durational limit is reached if you want them to support an extension.
